The new site is working very well: logged in, download some
extensions, no problem at all! Many thanks for the work!

Just a general question: is it possible to redirect the old address to
the new one? As someone noticed on the forums(1), the old address is
build-in on OOo so anyone trying to "get more extensions online" or
even "download more dictionaries" from OOo UI will not be able to
understand what's going on.

BTW, the new address is advertised on the ES, EN, IT and (thanks to
Floris V) Dutch forums.
